Dear Katy I would be happy if I could just 'skip' at least the rest of this year and maybe the next one too.
My husband was my life, he has been gone less than 4 months, and I truly want to die too.

Virginia I deeply appreciated your comment about signs from your husband . When did he pass? I desperly need a sign from my wife . Maybe I've already received it and was simply too wrapped up in self pitty to recongoize it . (see excuse spelling)

Hi Everyone,I'm back from my vacation to N C. and it was wonderfull, even with the 16 month old teething lol. I was reading all the post I missed this past week and for those wanting to know weather we get signs from our spouses yes, I was a believer before loosing Mike but I know it is true as I've had a few, then while on vac. this past week ( we've been there before ) at one of our favorate places, a stream comming out of the mountian side by the road my nephew was taking a picture of me and his wife and baby with his digital camera he started saying oh my god , don't move I need to take another one he did then i asked why and when he was trying to show us he was shaking like a leaf the first one ,right over my mouth and nose was a big white circle then in the second one nothing. he was like, he's here with us talking about Mike, he said it looks like he is giving you a kiss and the whole vac. there was signs everywhere something with his first name (Reed ) or out last name and in our journeys a road named yellow rose ave. yellow roses were Mikes favorate flower of all, our wedding flowers were red and yellow roses all of them every flower there, and I had the casket sprey all yellow roses with a few red roses and babys breath and the greenery and a broken heart made of the same. so there is no telling me he isn't with me. the vacation wasn't a sad one, it was really what I need to do and I'm truelly glad I did. glad to be back. hugs to all.

I was going to post a sad message but that will have to wait for now as something wonderful has happened to me and my grandson. My wife and I always liked a folk song called "Daisy a Day". My grandson planted Daisies to "give her a daisy a day".
I had posted this some time back and he had planted them a couple months ago.. My wife's garden is all weeds now and I had just pulled out all of the weeds.Low and behold the garden once again filled with weeds and I havent been wanting to pull them.Today,Friday, the whole garden was filled with blooming Daisies. Wow, my grandson can now give his grandmother "a Daisy a Day".A miracle come true.

I lost my husband after a lengthy illness Aug. 23, 2009.
My two sons both live too far away to get home much. I feel totally alone. It seems like one crisis after another. I used to be so strong. When Don was ill I did whatever it took to get him the best care. I kicked down doors if I had to. Now, I don't feel capable of making any decision. I want to just give up. I guess it is not an option because of my two grandchildren, but I do think about it. I just feel so alone.

I didn't know this site existed. I have no family and no one to talk with. My beloved passed away in February 2009 and I am still having a great deal of difficulty dealing with it. He was my best friend, my biggest supporter. I miss him so much.

Joan,Whether it was a sign or not,it still has to warm your heart.I'd like to think it was.I've heard they visit us in our dreams.I visited my husband's grave one time and my parting words were"'s your turn to come see me!"and guess what,that night I saw him in my dream.Now I'm sure skeptics will argue that he was in my thoughts.But I say I think of him all the time.It still warmed my heart.
